His friends all have their own opinions though. The Flooble doesn't like the door, walls, porch or roof. So Donfinkle changes them. But the Mooble doesn't like the new roof and walls. So Donfinkle changes them again. Then the Gooble and the Blooble chime in with their criticisms.
Poor Donfinkle doesn't know what to do. The house he was so happy with at the beginning now looks awful, and he realises he should have trusted himself and stuck with what he wanted. But is it even possible now for him and his friends to fix things?
The rhyming text liberally scattered with Goobles, Moobles, Bloobles and Floobles makes this a fabulous book to read aloud, while the quirky images by award-winning illustrator Wayne Harris are the perfect match to first-time author Choechoe Brereton's text.
Along the way, kids will also receive a valuable lesson in being true to themselves.
